New Spam For Old?

It’s time to peruse my spam folder for gems of information. Most comments were alleged to be in response to three posts: “A Modicum Of Diversion, Flat Earth Day, It Seemed Longer.”

There were too many to list them all. As always they followed similar themes. Were from the same sources.

There were a couple of terrific run-on sentences.  I may not be in the best of shape for a seventy-one year old male, but I don’t have pregnancy stretch marks.  There was another spam ad for dark spot cream.  Something else I didn’t need.  Thanks Canadian Pharmaceutical enterprises.  If that’s who you really represented?  Don’t call me, I’ll call you.

Road Glue

I’ve blogged for almost six years. Blogging is a record of major events for that time period. Even, for things found to be irritating.

Negative expressions: A nickel holding up a dollar; gumming up the works. Hopefully my efforts, have been neither.

The bizarre title has little to do with the rest of this post.  Other, than to say, it may have been inspired by the extreme amount of road kill seen this morning.  It’s springtime here, nearly summer, and critters are on the move.

Yesterday, my dogs were barking, carrying on about something in the back yard.  It turned out to be a black snake.  Snakes keep the rodent population down, and this particular one, wasn’t the poisonous variety.

Rain is falling in torrents.  The sun is shining full force.  A dichotomy due to the two combatants–spring and summer, fighting for dominance.

Buying & Selling (Happy Fifth Birthday)

To sell something, you need to provide something people want. “Don’t give away the store; 1% of something was better than, 1% of nothing.”  The relationship between buyers and sellers was tenuous at best.

Where were the hidden gold mines that enticed on the net? Engineered to appeal to insatiable appetites for excessiveness–“real deals,” “hidden money,” “little-known paths to prosperity.”

New!  Improved!  With less hyperbole, more content!  Congratulations are in order on this blogs fifth anniversary.  I’m more surprised than anyone.  I have plenty more to say, so keep reading and commenting.

A Day Off

I took today off to regroup–gather my thoughts.  No, there’s nothing wrong.  Life is good in general.

Sometimes I worry about repeating myself.  There’s the quality/quantity issue.  After almost five years of this, there have been a lot of posts.

The Shakespearian adage, “There’s nothing new under the sun,” applies.  That’s why, of late, I’ve done some updates on old posts.

In the local area, the new amusement park is shaping up.  Many of the new rides are visible.  What will this do for local traffic?  …The local economy?  The jury is still out.

“Wahlburgers” was announced today in a press conference, as the first tenant.  The first and only “Wahlburgers” franchise in the state.  More announcements are forthcoming.

From the Sidelines

This week I will be entertaining first-time visitors to the area–my sister and brother-in-law.  Looking forward to their visit and showing them around.

My klutziness has been in full force this past week.  Starting with my dropping a jar of chili sauce in the supermarket.  Tonight, I accidently sprayed myself with mayonnaise at a local restaurant.

Maybe I needed to be put in “time out?”  In the meantime my posts will be sporadic.  I’ll be watching from the sidelines.

A Friendly Reminder

It’s been a busy day.  Trip to the doctor for my regular monthly B-12 shot.  After, that off to get my tousled, salt-and-pepper mane trimmed.  Then, to the vet’s office to renew the dog’s medicine.  The vet’s office was closed–on vacation till April 2nd.  By that time it was mid-afternoon.

Time for afternoon coffee and cookies.  I’m finished running errands, and it’s raining.  At least, I made it home before the deluge.  A reminder to faithful readers, I will be on jury duty for the next two weeks.  Feel free to drop by in my absence.  I will be here evenings to check things out.

For the Team

Divisiveness faded

Like dirty snow

On every sandlot

Stadium and alley

Grass has gone green

The equinox vernal

They stand stick-straight

Optimism eternal

Stay within yourself

Try hard as you can

With clever phraseology

That will knock their socks off

Sprains, pains disappear

Loudspeaker blared

“All those with bruised egos

Report to the training room!”

Jonathan Livingston Seashell

How much is that froggy on the window?  Searching for frogs, toads, and lizards is my two dogs regular evening ritual.  If one of them finds something, the other one is right there.

It’s the celebration of the long Labor Day weekend.  I hope most of you are lucky enough to commune with Jonathan Livingston Seashell, and others like him, on the beach this holiday.

I’m sure some of you know the anxiety that can come with blogging.  One day loving it, the next day considering how to give your blog a proper send-off and burial.  Not getting upset about it, feels so much better.

Weekend, holiday revelers are beginning to congregate.  Got to run for some takeout–a regular Friday thing.



Subtle Innuendos

What did it mean to dream about found money?  Angry Rorschach blobs?

That was Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta’ Love,” by the Hollyridge Strings.  More easy listening favorites after news, sports, and weather.

This is Nick Bumpus, your host for “Mellow in the Morning.” Coming up–“You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling,” “What’s Love Got To Do With It?,” “Love Can Make You Happy,” “Love Stinks.”  Don’t go away–join me after the break–won’t you?

What this all means, is today I’m not loving this blogging thing so much.  Ideas are not flowing freely–not that they ever did, anyway.  I’ve enjoyed reading and commenting on other posts about as much as anything.
